We Mean Green Fund

What is the We Mean Green Fund?

The University of North Texas’ We Mean Green Fund (WMGF) is a student-funded resource created to support new campus environmental sustainability projects that are developed and led by students, staff, and faculty. The WMGF depends on collaborative campus partnerships between individuals, departments, and organizations to advance campus sustainability efforts.

Illustrated graphic reads: start something green. Many sources of renewable energy are drawn coming out of a hemisphere of the Earth that is drawn beneath it.

What kind of projects can receive funding?

The We Mean Green Fund Committee selects projects that enhance student learning and campus life while addressing environmental sustainability topics such as waste reduction, energy and water conservation, transportation, community engagement and education, building efficiencies, landscaping, gardening, biodiversity, and more.
